This course will foster an understanding of Relational and Interpersonal psychoanalysis, including awareness of the historical roots as well as more current trends within this area of the field.

Each class has been titled with a theme that relates to the readings for that week and may guide our class discussion. We will focus mainly on the first reading listed for a given week, while also tying in the main points of the second reading (if two are listed). Note that some weeks we have also listed “Optional Readings”. These are offered as recommendations for further exploration of the topic and will not be addressed in the class.

Learning Objectives

  1. Students will have an introductory understanding of the key figures and concerns of Interpersonal and Relational psychoanalytic theory.
  2. Students will learn to apply key concepts and concerns of Interpersonal and Relational theory to their clinical work.
  3. Students will be able to describe differences between Interpersonal and Relational theory and other psychoanalytic theories.
